INSTRUCTIONS

Make the Sweet and Sour Slaw
1. Mix all ingredients in medium bowl. Allow to sit while you prepare the tofu.

Make the Sticky Ginger Tofu

  1. Press tofu for at least 10-15 minutes.
  2. While your tofu presses, whisk together brown sugar, ginger, garlic cloves, soy sauce and lime juice. Heat on the stove top in a small saucepan, just until sugar melts, or zap it in a microwave-safe container for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut tofu into slabs, bite sized cubes, or cute little triangles, which I opted for. Place tofu in skillet and cook about five minutes on each side, or until it begins to brown and get crispy.
  4. Turn heat down to medium and pour sauce over tofu. Cook about another two minutes on each side, until nicely coated and sauce is thick and sticky.
  5. Divide slaw onto plates and top with tofu. Add a few sesame seeds, if desired.
